Hello! For those seeking reputable Sports Management programs, Howard University should be on your radar. It's well-respected and offers a comprehensive BBA with a concentration in Sports Management. Another HBCU to consider is Hampton University, which provides a concentration in Sports Management through its Department of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation.

It’s crucial to explore internship opportunities these programs offer, as real-world experience is invaluable in this field. It's worth noting Howard may have a leg up there, as all four major sports leagues have teams in Washington, D.C., but at the same time, sometimes being in a smaller environment can increase your chances of brushing shoulders with a potentially valuable professional connection.

You should also directly reach out to the departments at these HBCUs to inquire further about faculty interaction, specific coursework, and partnerships with sports organizations that could enhance your hands-on learning. Alumni networks can also provide insights into the long-term value of these programs. If possible, visit the campuses as well, to get a tangible feel for the community and resources available to you.

Best of luck with your search!
